What Are Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

Dark circles under the eyes are common beauty concerns that appear as darkened skin beneath both eyes. They are easily noticeable because they contrast with the natural skin tone and can make you look tired, older, or unwell.

What Causes Dark Circles Under the Eyes?

Several factors contribute to the appearance of dark circles. These include heredity, ageing, prolonged fatigue, or more severe medical conditions. Lifestyle choices such as exposure to the sun, excessive alcohol consumption, and smoking can exacerbate the situation. Additionally, dark circles can also be a result of skin pigmentation irregularities and thinning skin around the eyes.

How to Get Rid of Dark Circles?

At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer several effective treatments to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Each treatment is tailored to meet individual needs, ensuring the best possible results.

Hydrafacial

Hydrafacial is a rejuvenating treatment that greatly benefits the sensitive skin around the eyes. It combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection, which helps reduce the visibility of dark circles by improving skin health and elasticity.

Tear Trough Fillers

For deeper hollows under the eyes, Tear Trough Fillers can be a transformative solution. These fillers are designed to minimise dark circles by adding volume beneath the eyelid, resulting in a brighter, more youthful appearance.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to create micro-punctures in the skin, promoting collagen production and cellular renewal. This treatment can improve the thickness and texture of the skin, making dark circles less noticeable.

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)

PRP therapy involves using your blood plasma, enriched with platelets, to stimulate collagen and elastin fibres in the skin. This natural method not only enhances the under-eye area but also helps in reducing fine lines and improving skin tone.

How to Prevent Them?

Preventing dark circles is as important as treating them. Adequate sleep, proper hydration, and a balanced diet are essential. Avoiding excessive sun exposure and using sunscreen can also protect the delicate under-eye skin. Regular skin care routines and professional consultations can further help maintain vibrant skin.

FAQs Dark Circles Removal

What role do genetics play in dark circles under the eyes?

Genetics can play a significant role in the development of dark circles. If your parents have dark circles, you are more likely to develop them as well. Genetic factors can affect skin pigment, the depth of eye sockets, and the thickness of under-eye skin.

Are there any specific vitamins that help with dark circles?

Yes, certain vitamins and minerals can help reduce the appearance of dark circles. Vitamin C is crucial for collagen production and skin brightening, while vitamin K can help reduce blood clotting and improve circulation. Iron supplements can also be effective, especially if the dark circles are due to anaemia.

How does sleep affect dark circles?

Lack of sleep can worsen the appearance of dark circles. Sleep deprivation causes your skin to become dull and pale, allowing for dark tissues and blood vessels beneath your skin to show. Ensuring you get 7-8 hours of quality sleep per night can help mitigate dark circles.

Can dehydration cause dark circles?

Yes, dehydration can cause the skin to look pale and the eyes to appear sunken, both of which can make dark circles more prominent. It's important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help maintain skin hydration and overall health.

Is there any link between allergies and dark circles?

Allergies can contribute to dark circles as they cause congestion in the nasal passages, leading to dilated blood vessels that increase blood flow to the area under the eyes. This can result in a darker hue to the skin. Managing allergies with appropriate medications can help reduce this effect.

How effective are home remedies for treating dark circles?

Home remedies, such as applying cold compresses, cucumber slices, or tea bags, can temporarily reduce swelling and discolouration under the eyes. However, for more persistent dark circles, professional treatments at clinics like ours are often more effective.

Can stress cause dark circles?

Stress can impact your health in numerous ways, including causing significant changes to your skin. High stress can lead to poor sleep, hormonal imbalances, and changes in blood flow, all of which can contribute to the formation of dark circles.

What is the best time to treat dark circles?

It's best to treat dark circles as soon as you notice them. Early treatment can prevent them from worsening and can be more effective. However, treatments are available for all stages of dark circle severity.
